Wakefield Hospice fundraising opportunity

A message to our families from Wakefield Hospice:


A chance to win £1000 for your school…


Thanks to the generous support of our event sponsors, The Card Factory Foundation, we are giving one lucky school the chance to win £1,000 worth of sports equipment to promote fitness, wellbeing and future development!


How do we get involved?

On Sunday 24th March 2024, following the Wakefield 10k Race, our family friendly 1k fun-run takes place at 10:30am starting and finishing in Thornes Park. We are asking local schools to support the event by promoting participation to their pupils – with any school whose pupils raise £250+ in sponsorship added into the draw to win £1,000!

Here is the link to sign up =

How to raise funds?
The total raised can be done by a collective of children at the school, not just one person but if they do, well done them! We suggest setting up a Just Giving page or using paper sponsor forms which I have attached. (Please see separate post for the sponsor form). 


We will also have a £100 voucher up for grabs for one lucky child who enters the Fun Run to win on the day too!


See the attached poster for more information and how to sign up!


If you would like more information on how to get involved in this year’s Fun-Run, please email me at


Once again thank you for your kind support and we look forward to hopefully seeing your school represented at our Fun-Run this March!


Best wishes
